CFD Retiree Ernie Droze has donated two original photographs to us of the wreck of Charleston Fire Department Engine 3. The inscription on the back of one of them says that this accident occurred on May 21, 1916, at 9:05 p.m., at the corner of King and Society Streets, responding to Box 613. Assistant Engineer Markley Prince was fatally injured in this accident. What a important piece of our history! We will cherish them and display them in honor of Engineer Prince. Special thanks to Ernie and Sonya for allowing us to have these.
